Ancient design guide including descriptions in Kanji and Kana about how to build a ZEN or Samurai temple. All handwritten and drawn, with exact descriptions about the proportional design of almost every detail of a temple. This book is unique, due to the all handwriting and I hope, that some ZEN or temple masters might find a good use of it. 1
